THE STRIDES - Hammond Boogaloo R&B
Here at 208, we can't explain how pleased we are to have The strides on board. Hailing from Northampton, the band have been making fine hammond based re-workings of modernist sounds for five years now.
We recorded some excerpts from their stage act to launch this, their debut EP. Workouts include Crosstown Traffic, Green Onions, Get Carter, & Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band. These cats can play!!
The Strides are encycloepaedic in their knowledge of how these records were originally made, & have used these influence in working out the tunes in a new direction whilst maintaing a classic feel.
The Strides will not only be making fine recordings in their own right; they will also be house musicians on future projects with other 208 artists; our very own Bar-Kays!
